" Home from home, with a special touch !

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Sept 2020
Business stay, combined with pleasure. The service is exceptional. Hilsa, Stefan, Liezel and the whole team walks the extra mile with a constant smile and positive attitudes all the way.
The rooms are comfortable, white linen, electric blankets, homemade rusks and filter coffee in my room .... strong WIFI connection, comfortable desks to work at in the evening.
The surrounding is just what you need after a hardworking day and the food is absolutely devine!

You walk in after a long drive. Friendly staff greet you and check you in hassle free. Already you feel at home. Fires are burning. Wholesome soup await you. Music playing. Beulah views, such detail. Flowers on all the tables. The owner, Hilsa, personally greet you. The rooms are lovely. With comfortable pillows and clean white bedding. Everything you need it there.

We enjoyed the friendly and capable attitude of our hosts Liezel and Stefan during our recent road trip to the West Coast to see the flowers. They went out of their way to ensure 'nothing is a problem'!

We were there with a group of friends for the weekend. We had a fabulous time. The place is spotless and the service is great. If you want to experience the flowers in their full glory, it's an excellent place to use as your base.

We had wonderful visit at Melkboomsdrift with friends. Spectacular views of the river. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, smiling all the time. The food was excellent, service great, lapa has welcoming feel to it, 'lekker' place to 'kuier' all day and evening. We didn't want to leave and say goodbye, we will definitely be back asap!

Thank you to all the staff that made our stay memorable! Food, travel advise, view, laundry, wine, very nice rooms, fluffy pillows, we couldn’t ask for more! Thank you Tannie Skirt for the wonderful “afval” you cooked as a special request, we needed a “lappie” to clean those hands and faces. The De Jager Family
